The 3rd IEEE Workshop on
Enabling the Future Service-Oriented Internet: Towards Socially-Aware Networks

Held in conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2009
Honolulu, HI, USA, December 4, 2009


Technically Endorsed by:

IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on
Communications Systems Integration and Modelling


Call for Papers & Participation

Workshop Program

The objective of the workshop is to address network-level as well as application and service-layer topics of analysis, design, monitoring and experimentation. The top-down interplay between services and networking creates unique modelling, design and implementation challenges. The goal of the workshop is to focus the community's efforts in building up this important area by discussing perspective issues and required breakthroughs in research and development.



The workshop format will be a combination of original papers, review/white papers, quick hot topic presentations, and a panel discussion with participants from industry, the NSF, and academia. This will allow workshop participants to obtain a global perspective of the scope of this area and of the technical challenges associated with it, in a participative and interactive manner.



The workshop will be a mix of in person and electronic presentations, allowing some participants to join the workshop remotely, possibly via a virtual world platform.
